2021 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Recap
Behind-the-Scenes with The Lumineers and NOCOAST
Michal Menert and the Pretty Fantastics
Opening for Pretty Lights, Michal Menert and The Pretty Fantastics played a great set at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Here is a short recap video I shot and edited to promote Michal’s new album “From the Sea.”
Odesza - In Return: Red Rocks
It was awesome to collaborate with Odesza, when the SOLD OUT Red Rocks for their debut performance at the venue. Creative director Sean Kusanagi brought me on to shoot 5.5k time-lapses, and they are added into the edit for a dynamic effect. The sound design in this video is incredible, and I look forward to collaborating them again soon!
WE ARE WINTERWONDERGRASS!
For the past 6 years, I have been fortunate to act as a director, cinematographer, and editor for the house team at WinterWonderGrass. Not only are the musical acts top notch every year – often performing outside in the middle of a cold blizzard – many of the crewmembers behind-the-scenes have become close family and friends.
STS9 - Light Years NYE
NOCOAST spent New Year’s Eve 2017 with STS9 at The Fillmore in Denver, Colorado. Tobin Voggesser directed an 8-camera stream with our new Blackmagic Designs switcher. I directed and edited this video re-cap to Tribe’s live performance of “Vapors” from that night. I had a lot of fun shooting this video on the Sony A7s2 in both 4k/1080p, Canon L Series Primes, and my Glidecam.
The Disco Biscuits – "Portal to an Empty Head"
A Studio Recording Session
Back in 2010 I got the opportunity to hang out in the studio for two weeks with one of my favorite bands, The Disco Biscuits. When working solo, you often have to get creative with your shooting and editing style to make the shoot seem more produced.
“I’m looking out a window, when I see the wind blow, maybe I won’t know when to end.” – Marc Brownstein
Not only did this shoot mark the beginning of NOCOAST, but it was also the beginning of my career as a music documentarian. The resulting edits are some of my all-time favorites, and I will always look back to these Studio 4 Sessions fondly. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from the trip:
Grace Potter – "Instigators" Live
Grace is a BADASS.
NOCOAST was recently invited to film Grace Potter at the Boulder Theater. Armed with two Camera Goat cinema dollys and core crew of 6 videographers we filmed the whole show in multi-cam. The video above for “Instigators” turned out great with a series of fast cuts and high energy camera movement. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos below:
The Disco Biscuits – "Konkrete"
Take a TRIP around
NYC at light speed...
Back in 2008 I entered a Make-Your-Own Music Video contest for The Disco Biscuits, and won! This video was projected on the big screen at Red Rocks in front of 8,000 people. It was one hell of an introduction to my favorite music venue, and the beginning to a long relationship with TDB…
The String Cheese Incident – "Colorado Bluebird Sky"
Colorado Bluebird Sky
SCI takes it to the streets of Boulder for a free concert to celebrate their 20th Anniversary, and the release of their first studio album in 8 years. The NOCOAST crew was there to capture it…
